Dietary studies and whole-body measurements were used to estimate the intake of radiocesium and the radiation dose received by different groups of people in Norway after the Chernohyl accident.
Freshwater fish, milk, and reindeer meat were the major sources for radiocesium intake.
Dietary advice, together with agricultural decontamination measures, resulted in a considerable reduction in the exposure level of the population.
A majority (40-80%) of the specially selected groups (farmers-hunters and Sami reindeer herds-man) changed its diet significantly after the accident.
